inaugural. but also theodore roosevelt, dwight eisenhower, ronald reagan. i look at it more as a form of relaxation for the president when we get to meet him. he gets to chew the fat a lit bit about past presidents. >> doris, you're a presidential expert, how do you rate president obama in the pantheon of great presidents? or just presidents? >> well, you know, when you think about the great presidents, great necessities call forth great leaders. so george washington, abraham lincoln, fdr had a huge crises to face. obama had a pretty big crisis to face. he did accomplish in health care something since presidents since teddy roosevelt have been trying to accomplish. but i think most importantly, we'll see now the fact that he's got a second term, that's really important to embolden him for what he can accomplish, and more importantly, to show that the country supported kurg a very difficult time his leadership and they wanted him back again. so i think he's got a shot. it depends a lot on what happens in the second term, if he can create -- i wish he would go in the midterms to try to
and served under president bush 41 and as ronald reagan me a incendiary comments about the republican party on one of the sunday shows yesterday. >> there is also a dark, a dark intolerance by some in the party. what do i mean by that? i mean they still sort of look down on minorities. how can i evidence that? i see the former governor saying that the president is shucking and jiving that is a racial slave term. >> andrea: today on my radio show, senator rubio had this to say in response --" i disagree with general powell's assessment of the republican party. they placed two hispanics in the u.s. senate and we now have an african-american senator." so, bob, baseless criticism from powell? >> bob: not at all. the way you introduce this thing you said he said the republican party. that's not what he said. he said a small bane in the republican party that looks down on minorities. i believe that's true. i believe when you had kreito in the house he looked down to hispanics. whoever made the shuck and jive, that was that's racial comment. i don't believe that the republican party is all racist
a likability factor here that rivals ronald reagan, right? and it's very similar to that. but more people disapprove of his policies than approve of them. and so when you look at that, he's mindful of that a little bit. he's got a power to persuade when you have those kind of likability numbers. but at the same time, the public is sort of screaming at all of washington to do what savannah was talking about. and when we asked him wa kihat of message you want to send, he said fix this economy, create jobs and is for gosh sakes, compromise. i'm told in this anaugural address, he's going to be pragmatic of hope and is change rather than the full scale high level expectations you had four years ago, brian. >> and, chuck, these are speeches for the ages, the long view. but how much of current events do you think will be in it? we were speculating last night about two things in particular, number one, gun violence and the need, as the president sees it, to attack that as an issue quickly and, number two, we're going to be introducing doris kearns goodwin later on. what is the chance he doesn't q
to look at, do not repeat roe. roe was happened at a time the rapid social change, ronald reagan signed the most liberal abortion law in the country. this put a stop at all of this. this decreed liberal success before it was in the culture. it creates all the social tension. let the people work it out in the states. in referenda. but not to do it by decree on high. i hope that the court learned that lesson and won't do the same with gay issues as well. >> bret: fox polled right before the election, a.b., had the split pro-choice. you know, depending on the poll, it is a fairly close split. change here and there. >> those people would argue that using the terms is not really accurate polling. everyone is pro-life, even if they support the right to an abortion. other polling, majority in the high 60s in support for roe and legal abortion. that said, pro-life movement waged on restriction and access has been suckbe sesful. they have succeeded in acting restriction -- enacting restrictions across the country in every state that has reduced access to abortion that has taken the pro-choice mo
of office for the first time. >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> and it with news 1981 when ronald reagan was taking the oath on the steps of the u.s. capital word came that 52 americans who had been held hostage for 440 days in iran were on the way home. and moments later, the newly sworn in president reagan revealed the news to congress in the statuary hall. >> and now the conclude the test with thanks to almighty god, i have been given a tag line, to get-off line that everybody wants for the end of a toast or speech or anything else. some 30 minutes ago, the planes bearing our prisoners left iranian air space and are now fr free. so -- [ applause ] >> so, we can all drink to this one, to all of us together, doing what we all know we can do to make this country what it should be, what it can be, what it always has been. >> seven days later the former hostages were back on american soil. they landed at an drews air force base and greeted by family and friends and the new vice president, george h.w. bush. >> promises made and promises b
of person. >> sean: but he worked for ronald reagan-- >> and why when you try to run on these national offices you get defeated. moreover. >> sean: hang on a second. >> moreover, president obama got 39% of the white vote. it wasn't that he just won because of minorities. >> sean: michael, the democratic party, it was joe biden that said we're going to put you all back in chains. it was al gore that said republicans don't want to count black people in the census before the predomina predominantly black audience and the james byrd ad. if he wanted to be equally as critical, i can't get a direct answer. who are the people, name names and identify what they said and if in fact they are what owe sa he says they are, racism is repugnant. >> it is, and a good friend of ours said if everything is racism, nothing is racism and that's the most unfortunate thing of that phenomenon. i call it it the sharptonization of american politics where you have people that use the race card as a political weapon of mass destruction. and look it, there 's an intolerance in politics, there's an intolerance wit
's wonderful. >> the problem is there's no ronald reagan, there's no bill clinton, there's nobody to talk. you know, the average person thinks that we suddenly had a revenue shortfall and that's why we're running a deficit. they have no idea that we've got tons of revenue but that spending is at a ridiculous level now. 25% of gdp. it needs to get down to 17% of gdp. nobody has explained this to the public properly or convincingly. >> aunder your favorite presidet the debt has gone from roughly 10 trillion to 16 trillion. we just had the treasury numbers out yesterday. in fact, in the last year it went up again 1.3 trillion. now, this leaves an opening for the republicans. but i don't think they're smart enough to take it. and i agree with costa. actually, the president, who is a very clever political guy, they're letting him get off because he doesn't want to cut 13e7bding. mark is right. except smash the defense department. the rest of it, the entitlements, the discretionary, the little entitlements, he doesn't want to touch them. >> i don't know. was there a question in there? >> i think som
: ronald reagan and bush 41 and bush 43 and the republican party, he has now moved to the left, obviously, not supporting policies that are conservative and it seems like a political attack. >> no, i think it clearly was. look, sean, you know better than anybody, this nation is at a crossroads and we're facing a huge challenge internationally, in terms of the threats posed to us from terrorist organizations like al-qaeda and a usage threats at home in terms of having a president that's unwilling to deal with the fiscal issues, unwilling to deal with the debt crisis and addicted to more spending and spending is the answer to our problems and i think the republican party is our last best hope, i'm
commentator suggesting the president's mission now is to reverse everything that ronald reagan put in place 30 years ago. our panel debates that in a moment. >> this was really obama unbound and i think what is most interesting is that obama basically is declaring the end of reaganism in this speech. jenna shared her recipe with sharon, who emailed it to emily, who sent it to cindy, who wondered why her soup wasn't quite the same. the recipe's not the recipe... ohhh. [ female announcer ] ...without swanson. the broth cooks trust most when making soup. mmmm! [ female announcer ] the secret is swanson. bill: some breaking news from the high court. supreme court will not consider an appeal over how much authority the epa should have in setting air quality standards. that appeal filed by a company that operates one of the three main u.s. copper plants. it was appealing a decision by the d.c. circuit court in july that had uphold the environmental protection agency, the epa's new air quality standard for sulfur dioxide. you got that? martha: got it. bill: all clear? martha: leading conservative cha
conservatives were chained to reality, whether they liked it or not. he defended ronald reagan when right wingers attacked him to california and said what would you like him to do, chain himself to the state capitolened read the liberty documents? at the end of the day, it's about winning. is the republican party more likely to win swing voters over if it's embracing colin powell or constantly attacking him. if they could pull moderates like him back and expand the tent. >> you have even seen now with mark rubio, what he's saying around immigration, some of them are beginning to recognize you're not going to be able to be a governing party and get back the white house without having an immigration strategy that allows latinos to be incorporated in the political situati system and have a path to citizenship and paul ryan agreed. some of them are beginning to realize political reality and facts. john boehner, one of the problems, he inflammatounfortun not seem to have the leadership skills to lead instead of following the tea party in his caucus. >> i would disagree. i'm not here to defend
that, juan? >> no, it's his inauguration and i think that i remember back to covering ronald reagan, he introduced the idea of bringing people onto the balcony giving the state of the union to illustrate the point he was trying to make, the program, the legislative agenda he set for himself and i think this is a lot like this and reminded of the criticism that attracted the president attracted yesterday when he had those young people, those children at the ceremony for his signing that gun-- his executive orders on gun control, but the idea, i think, is as i understand it from the white house, to exhibit core values that attach to this administration, so this is the president saying this is who i am, i stand for someone who didn't have health care before. i stand for a gay persowants to. i stand for veterans who served and now deserve a job in the country. that's upbeat stuff to my mind. >> megyn: ben? >> juan, there's also people sitting there going you've got a guy who got an overinflated salary and we lost money bailing money out of an auto company and a break because he choose to pu
not addressing that? ronald reagan looked into the mental health institutions. why should we take whatever basic civil liberties it? guest: that as a central aspect and both parties agree that certainly, in the case of these high-profile shootings like a new town and the debbie giffords shooting and others that sometimes the problem is with the state of the shooter. we saw that in colorado, apparently as well. in many cases, you look back on these instances and it turns out to their warning signs along the way and that the mental health system, the educational system, did not have any way of taking these people in and channeling them into some kind help for themselves. how you deal with that? have you identify those people? how do you fund these programs? these are legitimate and complicated issues that will probably be part of this debate. there is no easy answer to any of this. my guess is that we will see some incremental changes, efforts to fund particular things, pilot programs that might have some broader lessons that can be applied. host: on the economy, president obama yesterday said the
? ronald reagan closed all of the mental health institutions. why aren't we looking into reestablishing them? versus taking one of our basic civil liberties away. guest: absolutely a central aspect to this -- both parties agree in the case of these high- profile shootings that sometimes the problem is with the state of the shooter. we saw that in colorado. in and he, you look back on these instances and it turns out there were warning lines and that the mental health system, the educational system did not have any way of taking these people in and channeling them in some kind of help for themselves. how do you deal with that? how do you fund these programs? all of those are complicated issues that will probably be part of this debate. there is no easy answer to any of them. what will see are a lot of incremental changes, efforts to fund things, pilot programs that might have some broader lessons. host: on the economy, president obama said the recession is over. we are on our way to the recovery. might republicans take issue with that part of the speech? guest: they will. the jobless num
's not the case anymore, is it? >> well, actually ronald reagan spoke very well about this exact point. he said those who want to do away with the electoral system will disenfranchise our midwestern or rural states. he said that because we are a republic where states' rights and their representation is important and he didn't want the tyranny of the majority. what he wanted to make sure that those states that 15 rural ones could at least get their electoral vote heard because they had, like even though they're rural, at least a decent amount of electoral votes. it's very important -- >> gregg: they can still be heard, if you just do it on a proportionality, like maine and nebraska. right? >> yes, but maine and nebraska, as you know, only have two and three congressional districts. and only one has any not won everything there. when you begin to get into states like texas or pen, then you're beginning as an individual state to jerry mannedder what the outcome can be. then four years from now as democrats control that, then they change it back to the old way and you've lost so much trust in polit
basically is declaring the end of reaganism in this speech. remember, he once said that ronald reagan was historically consequential in a way that bill clinton was not. and what obama meant is that obama had changed the ideological course of the country. in 1981 in his inaugural address within two minutes, reagan had declared that government is not the solution, government is the problem. today's inaugural address was a rebuke to that entire idea. this speech today was an ode to big government. it was a hymn to big government. in his refrain, the three "we the people"'s, number one i'm going to defend what liberalism acheered, medicare, social security, medicaid. i'm not going to let any of that be chipped away and secondly, he said the vision for the future, climate change and green energy, the new expansion of liberalism in the new century and then the third element was his expansion of civil rights, where he talked about immigrants and gays and shoe-horned to gun rights under the rubric of security. he outlined the liberal agenda, the big government agenda in the future. and brit t
about second term curses that have brought down richard nixon, hampered ronald reagan, bill clinton. people forget reagan was able to get tax reform, bill clinton was able to get a balanced budget. certainly a big opportunity for the president but fully aware in the white house, a lot of challenges ahead as well, jenna. >> certainly not challenges for a father. nice to see the first family, ed, and how much the girls have grown up over the last four years. what we're looking at for the president tomorrow besides the hair styles and what everybody is wearing at the inauguration is what is he going to say? what will be the address to the nation tomorrow? you mentioned some policy challenges ahead. what are you hearing about tomorrow's address and how that might set the table, if you will, for the years to come? >> true. what i'm hearing is the state of the union address next month is really where the president will go with a deeper dive on policy, whether it be gun control, immigration reform, the debt ceiling debate. tomorrow's broad scene. his senior advisor will talk about bringing

, a tradition that dates back to ronald reagan. the nomination of john kerry officially to serve as secretary of state. his confirmation hearing will take place this thursday. we're told a vote will take place next tuesday. he will be sworn in as secretary of state next wednesday. chuck hagel to head up the funds and j-- head up defense and jack lew as secretary of state. >> i think chuck this is the steepest climb to his nomination. even before it was officially announced, a lot of members on both sides coming out. there were so many republican members, and he is a former senator republican member from nebraska. even members of his own party coming out in opposition. i think he will face a tough time. jack lew i think will also be of the cross hairs. he was sort of the president's point man when it came to the fiscal issues on capitol hill. we have seen through the spending fights that jack lew was the guy to rankle the different positions and bring everyone to some type of agreement and avert disaster. what is funny is the same goodwill he was able to build up through a lot of the past spen

inaugurations. you've served for three different presidents starting with ronald reagan and then 41 and then 43 as well. today, while we watch what's going on on the west face of the capitol, at the white house, whole bunch of people are reenergized because a lot of people get new offices, new assignments. plain how that works -- explain how that works behind the scene. >> it's sort of like new year's day. you're all excited and you make all kinds of promises that you're going to lose weight and exercise and it's very exciting. people get to move into offices. they shuffle around, get new phone numbers, new business cards. take an oath of office to help the president do his could be and protect and defend the constitution of the united states against all enemies, foreign and domestic. so it's exciting. they're bringing their families in. it's an exciting time. it's also a time of cleaning out because there is some people that won't be staying. when they change hands, if you will, inside the white house, there are some people that will say, what comes next? i haven't made any plans. there will b
